This Is How A Division II School Gets On SportsCenter (Video)

NCAA Division II schools rarely get any love from ESPN’s SportsCenter.  That is not much of a surprise, seeing as how they must compete with over 100 bigger schools from Division I for airtime.  Their only shot at getting a segment on the nation’s top daily sports news television show is to provide us all with a moment of brilliance.

The University of Bridgeport did just that, albeit with less than a minute remaining in a blow-out victory.

Rather than simply run out the clock with just over 40 seconds remaining and a 96-59 lead, Bridgeport had enough time to score on two monster slams off the fast break, the first of which included a pass off the backboard.  That would make the score 100-59, and send the crowd into a frenzy.

Judging by the reaction from the fans, you would think they had just won free pizza for reaching the century mark.
